Getting an Earful

To "get an earful" is to get an earful of words. That is, to have one's ears filled with words; these words are likely loud and angry. Ex.: "I got an earful from m boss for losing that client. I tried my best, and it wasn't my fault, but the company lost the client and the boss blamed me." Getting an earful usually means being sharply criticized.
